COUNSELING VETERANS: Strategies for Working with Returning Soldiers
Features Herbert Exum and Amy Menna, University of South Florida, who feel that the counseling profession has not given sufficient attention and study to the problems of returning military. Only with Iraq and Gulf Wars are counselors beginning to understand their needs and how to deal with them responsibly. The first step is the realization that veterans are actually members of a distinct cultural group. This program examines that culture and vets' special needs. Viewers learn about post-traumatic stress, specific treatment issues, and the critical importance of working with military families.
